Run the Gap is a fun run held every year at the majestic Grampians National Park. Not only is this a fun run, but it a way to see and experience Halls Gap, one of the most scenic and iconic natural features in Victoria, while also raising money for a good cause!
Participants can complete a scenic 6km walk/run along Fyans Creek trail, run 12kms including a lap across the wall at stunning Lake Bellfield, or test themselves in the 21km trail run.
All proceeds go to the RTG community project to enhance bike/walk path. Plus $1 from each registration is donated to the "Grampians Walking Tracks Support Group" assisting to maintain Grampians National Park Trails.

Run the Gap routes
The 6km run will follow the walking path from the parklands to Tandara Road, crossing the creek and picking up the Fyans Creek Trail to Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre and returning along the walking/bike path.
The 12km run will continue from Fyans Creek Trail behind Brambuk and follow varied terrain through to Tymna Drive up to Lake Bellfield (for a lap of the wall) and return via the walking/bike path. The 12K & 6K courses will be clearly marked with cones, kilometre markers plus a lead bike. Please listen to instructions given by course marshals. For your own safety, ensure you eat and drink adequately before the event.
The 21km course is a great introduction to competitive trail running, with a combination of meandering fire trail, steep and technical single track climbs/descents and stunning scenery. Road runners, trail runners both experienced and new will find the variety and diversity of the course rewarding and a worthy challenge. A FAQ sheet and map is provided through registrations when signing up.
You will find varying terrain with sandy tracks, sandstone rocks and perhaps even mud, with one major climb and further undulations in the second half. You are likely to see or hear kangaroos, emus and other wildlife, and the views across to Mt. Rosea, the Pinnacle and down onto Lake Bellfield make it all worthwhile. Runners find the run a challenging, but rewarding experience.
